    Is the processor in this thing not very good? Sometimes when switching artists or albums i get a second of two delay. Anyone else experience this? Is it normal?

    it takes a second for the heads to move to the sector of the HD that the music you want to listen to is in, when you are on a playlist it can cache the thing in the 32MB (around that much may be 16MB may be 64MB, i'm not sure) memory so it transitions smoothly, but it cant know that your going to jump around on the HD so it has to have that access time delay, it happens on all HD based players.

    As he said. But try and setup playlists. This means your iPod can spin 25 minutes of music to the cache in one go, saving your precious battery.

    Are you copying music or other files?

    music from itunes. I may drag 20 songs at a time or 10 songs, sometimes it works fine, sometimes I get that error. Do I have to wait until those songs are finished before I drag something else to the ipod? It didn't seem to matter, but was wondering. thanks.

    Normal

    That's why some people like flash players. Personally I think it feels awesome when the hard drive head jumps while you're holding the iPod.
